Jones Jr. joins 700 club at Galaxy


Bowling teams from Kentucky colleges compete in the United States Bowling Congress Intercollegiate Championships.

College teams in this competition must finish among the top four men’s or women’s teams in four regional tournaments to qualify for the national tournament.

Teams from Pikeville College, the University of Louisville, Bellarmine and Morehead State bowled in the regionals. The Pikeville men’s and women’s teams were the only teams from Kentucky to qualify for the national tournament. The Pikeville women were the defending national champions.

The Pikeville women defeated Penn State and Robert Morris, but were eliminated after losing to Central Florida and Erie Community College in the double-elimination tournament.

The Pikeville men defeated Robert Morris, but lost to Rochester Institute of Technology and North Dakota State.

Perennial power Wichita State won both the men’s and women’s titles. Many professional bowlers came from Wichita State.
